With brawn and energy, members of the Wa`akapaemua boys crew show a powerful start to their half mile race during the Molokai’s third regatta of the season last Saturday. The races ranged from quarter mile sprint to the mile-long test of endurance and precision as crews competed to make tightest turns around course marker flags. The event was hosted by the Wa`akapaemua club, with Molokai Canoe Club and Kukui ‘O Molokai also participating. The next Molokai race is July 18, followed by the state regatta in Hilo on August 1. Many crews qualified for the state races during Saturday’s regatta.
